Voting for yourself through new accounts. My suspicions. Answered
Since I've started playing around in the contests adding this and that, I see people with an outstanding number of votes, but a pitiful amount of page views. I get the suspicion that said people are creating new accounts and voting for themselves. How do I come about this you ask? I can't say for sure, but when I see someones page who has a ton of feedback from peoples accounts that were created within the contest period, it seems a little fishy. I think that the person enters said instructable, makes more accounts, and while he's going to vote for himself, leaves some nice feedback to try and incourage others to vote. Because when I see a page full of feedback from accounts created in the last 4 days, I get a little paranoid. So seriously people, DO NOT DO THIS, don't go and vote for yourself. It's not cool, and nobody likes when people do it. It messes with contests and peoples instructables who honestly would have won, may not because some jerk gives himself votes through his accounts. Let me know what you guys think, and lets try to figure out a way of keeping this from happening, because I don't want it ruining a perfectly good contest.
